We’ve heard that a million times, and now we even say it. We are the lost generation. We are lost. But let me tell you one thing, this doesn’t have to be a bad thing. Being lost only means you’re not in your place, but that doesn’t mean you don’t have a place. There’ll be change, but a different change from the last generation. Because the generation of our parents knew the things they had to fight for, but we have to discover the things we have to fight for. Some things, we for sure now it. But we still don’t know how to change them. We see our world in constant movement, in constant change, and it scares us. It makes us feel like we are lost and we don’t belong here. But we do belong here, we just have to find our place, our motivation, our minds. Yes, you’ve read right, our own minds.We need to know that we’re not the generation of our parents, and we cannot run directly onto hating their values and wanting to change everything. We were born in the middle of big changes, and big mistakes. We’re confused. And it’s okay.
We need to find our own way, our own way of seeing things, and thinking and shouting. We need to find ourselves before we do anything else. They gave us a lot of things, and that hid all the things they took from us. We need to find out what we’re missing, and ask for it.
We need to convince people that we’re not the lost generation, because that’s how they give us less credit, less value, less worth.
Yes, we might be lost right now, but this is not going to last forever. They know that, but do we? We have a voice, we have a mind. And we have to stop being scared of them. We need to believe in ourselves. We need to stand up and begin walking, or even running, because if you’re lost and you walk, eventually you’ll find yourself in another place. And maybe that place’ll be home.
